  160. I'm new to your blog and love the fabric you posted! Lots of favorite books (like quilts and fabrics), but since I must choose one I'd say for an older book "Gone With The Wind" and a newer book is "On The Corner of Bitter and Sweet." Thanks so much for the chance to win gorgeous fabrics. Looking forward to the coming up - big block quilts this summer!

  161. I'm a bit of a book fiend. As a child it was Enid Blyton amongst others, now my shelves and kindle are filled with quite a mix of historical novels, science fiction, fantasy, thrillers and crime. I have quite a extensive list of favourite authors and favourite books and have re-read so many of the books I have several times. My absolute favourites are probably the calssics - Jane Austen and the like and these are the books I probably read and re-read the most.

  172. I love Lois McMaster Bujold's Vorkosigan saga. I'd recommend it if you like scifi books with a strong female character.

    Thanks for such a lovely giveaway, the coordinating colors with the white-based scrolls and the color-background white circles makes for really pretty projects!

  173. For audiobooks nothing beats Jim Dale reading me the Harry Potter series. For fun quick reads I rather like Gail Carriger.

  174. i love urban fantasy series so my current favorites are: the hollows rachel morgan series (the first being "dead witch walking") and karen marie moning's fever series.

  175. Love this question! The Little Women series are still dear to me, as are all of Madeleine L'Engle's "Wrinkle in Time"-related books. I grew up loving Janet Lambert's novels for girls, and they are comfort reading for me even now. As an adult I was given the first "Miss Read" book and recommend her series to anyone--they are slyly funny and incredibly charming.
